I captured this video on home security cam. Sorry but I don't have a You tube account so I can't upload it there and I don't know how to post it directly. So I will put in the link to the video on my facebook page. I am located in South Australia's Riverland district and the video was taken facing North West just after midnight last night. The time and date stamps are correct.

Cant view it but..

"January 3, 4 - Quadrantids Meteor Shower. The Quadrantids is an above average shower, with up to 40 meteors per hour at its peak. It is thought to be produced by dust grains left behind by an extinct comet known as 2003 EH1, which was discovered in 2003. The shower runs annually from January 1-5. It peaks this year on the night of the 3rd and morning of the 4th. Unfortunately the nearly full moon will block out all but the brightest meteors this year. Best viewing will be from a dark location after midnight. Meteors will radiate from the constellation Bootes, but can appear anywhere in the sky."

It must have flown straight overhead from out of camera view and yeah it blew up alright. Where is the best place to report this?

Interesting. I am trying to figure out the origin of the meteor. In what direction was the image taken (west? East? )?

We have worked out, by using google Earth, it was almost exactly due North.

Edit : It was filmed in Loxton S.A.

Almost exactly due north. Okay, thank you for the info.
The quadrantids theory fits well with this information.

BTW, yes your video indeed works

Great job! Makes me miss our outdoor camera. I used to catch some 'questionable' things in the night sky once in a while. Sure is exciting when you do! This looks like a great meteor shot!! Let us know if you hear back from the person you contacted. Thanks for sharing!!👍👍

I only live about 120 or so K's west from you, on the river also. About 2 weeks ago my son and I saw a very similar meteor, probabaly the best one I've ever seen. It was also travelling almost exactly north, bright green with what appeared orange sparks and it fell for a long while maybe 4-5 seconds, we both spoke (swore) as we were watching it, morre than once.
We own a sheep station so we were about 80km from the town I live in and were up on a hill at the shearing shed, unobstructed view, it really was spectacular. I reckon it was about 8.30-9.00 pm, just about dark.
Thanks for the clip, great to know there has been more of these recently.

Cheers.
